The Critical Eye was conceived as a showcase for my writing. Not all of it—there's far too much
—but a good selection of the reviews I've written and interviews I've conducted since 1991.
Much of the site is made up of articles originally written for publications like Computer Paper
, January Magazine
, and my animation magazine fps
. You'll also find the original interviews that supported articles I've written, as well as unpublished articles and items written expressly for the Critical Eye.
There are some articles I can't reprint here because I don't have the rights to them. If you're curious about those, there are links to them in my bibliography
Because I'm often asked about where to get the items I write about, there are links to websites where you can buy almost everything mentioned here. The majority of the links point to Amazon.com, but there are a handful of other retailers' links as well.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy your visit. Feel free to explore and poke around; there's a wide variety of subjects, and you never know what you'll come across here!
